I recently continued my love of the SCAR and after using one extensively in my profession, have added one to my private collection. I don't usually do this, but I am in need of some advice for an optic. SI SCAR MK10s I have used and come across have all been fitted with a Elcan Specter DR 1.5-6x or 1-4x and a doctored MRDS mounted on top. Love the setup, but I personally cannot justify spending $2.5k+ on an optic that I can use at work. I am sort of limited to the sub $1000 range for an optic, and I would like to stay even lower. I just put an Aimpoint H-1 on one of my ARs, and now have a Barska (cheap, I know) 1-4x28 carbine scope that is free. I was wondering if this would be a viable option for the SCAR 17S. I know exactly what I envision the setup being for (600yd max) and know how to use it. At this point, I am turning towards some of you who have a better grip of what's out there on the market in my price range in terms of optics... Have also considered a Vortex 1-4x.
